The MI-SAFE package: resources to implement nature based flood defence The FAST project (Foreshore Assessment using Space Technology) has developed the MI-SAFE package to help meet the requirement for quantifiable benefits of nature based solutions through a combination of earth observation information and numerical modelling, packaged into open source and online products and services that demonstrate how coastal vegetation can contribute to meet flood risk challenges. MISAFE information is based on the latest satellite sensor technology and big data analysis capabilities.

The MI-SAFE package combines existing and new earth observation data for coasts worldwide to estimate
the contribution of vegetated foreshores towards coastal flood and erosion risk reduction. The MI-SAFE viewer gives a quick indication of the extent to which vegetation prevents coastal flooding and erosion. It does so qualitatively also for areas with little or no local data, drawing on open global sources of information. For locations for which more data is available, advanced services can provide specific quantitative information upon request.

The MI-SAFE package works as a platform of services supported by a team of international experts. It delivers the capacity to explore multiple ecosystem services provided by vegetation and to incorporate these into coastal flood/erosion risk management decisions anywhere on the world’s coastlines.
In this webinar, the MI-SAFE team of experts (i.e. the FAST team) will explain the science behind the MISAFE package, the resources that this package of services offers, and the access routes for a range of
user types.
